Contextual Ethics

Project: Research

Project Details


The primary objective of ‘Contextual Ethics’ is to provide a framework that brings together Nordic researchers working on contextualized ethics both within philosophy departments and within other fields with the aim of developing adequate theoretical frameworks for research on contextualized ethics and methods and approaches integrating contextual and normative issues. The project will thereby consolidate the new and growing field of contextual ethics and help establish a new research community in the Nordic countries, which will place Nordic researchers in the forefront of research on contextual ethics.

‘Contextual Ethics’ will host three international workshops, provide research publications on ethics in context, and establish and conceptualize the difficult area of moral change.
